My research and teaching interests are in imperial and postcolonial Europe, francophone Africa, race, religion, youth, and global history. My book, Black France, White Europe: Youth, Race, and Belonging in the Postwar Era (Cornell, 2022), explores how public and private programs to promote solidarity between French and African youth collided with transnational efforts to make young people in Western Europe feel European after World War II. Based on many years of archival research in France, Senegal, Italy and Belgium, Black France, White Europe locates these competing generational projects at the center of the entangled history of decolonization and European integration. A co-founder of the Race and Pedagogy Working Group at the University of Chicago, I am currently a member of the Graduate Faculty in History at Rutgers-New Brunswick, Rutgers’ Center for African Studies. I also chair the Engagé.e.s and Tyler Stovall Mission Prize initiatives at the Western Society for French History.
